You’ll specialise in architecture and urban design, as well as studying structural and geomechanical engineering. You’ll also develop key design and manufacturing skills. In the first two years, you'll develop a solid grounding in the fundamental engineering science, as well as the basis of civil engineering. You'll be introduced to key design skills, such as sketching model-making and computing, through workshops and through design projects. In your third year, you'll specialise in civil engineering with a focus on urban design, and develop your knowledge of structures and geotechnics. In year 4, you’ll put architectural principles into practice through design projects and study project economics and management.
